embedded electronics
Embedded Electronics is one of the largest groups in Revolve NTNU and are responsible for all the low-voltage electronics in the vehicle. After one year in this group, you will understand the process of creating a circuit board, from concept and design to prototyping and production.

power systems
Power Systems is the high-voltage group of revolve NTNU. It is also where the electrical systems meet the mechanical world. After one year in this group, you will have hands-on experience with Solidworks CAD, high-voltage batteries, a variety of cooling solutions, or wire harness manufacturing.

For the Aerodynamics team, the primary focus is on maximizing vehicle performance through precise manipulation of airflow. This involves the creation of an optimized wing package that enhances grip, hereby increasing the cornering abilities, by generating increased downforce.To achieve this, the wing package is methodically developed using a combination of iterative 3D modeling in CAD (Computer Aided Design), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations for accurate airflow analysis, and validation of simulation results. The team also creates the design of robust fastening mechanisms capable of withstanding aerodynamic forces. These fasteners are crafted using CAD software and the Finite Element Method (FEM). The wing elements and fasteners are produced using advanced carbon fiber resin casts, and different production methods to create aluminium components.

Simulation & Validation
The Chassis group plans, designs and produces the complete chassis of the car. The main structure is made out of carbon fiber and the group is responsible for integrating all other systems that are either to be inserted, or attached to the monocoque. Because of this, the group must have a good overview of all other systems of the car while also making sure the chassis reaches the requirements needed in order to create the fastest car. Weight, stiffness and safety are only some of the parameters the group must take into consideration while producing the monocoque.

suspension & powertrain
The Suspension & Powertrain group is responsible for all parts connecting the racecar to the road. Everything that happens after the electric motors have started turning is purely mechanical, and a well tuned suspension system can be the difference between winning a race or spinning out due to loss of grip. The system is based around our in-wheel design, where the motors are packed in the rim-center of each wheel, connected through the upright to the structural suspension. This keeps the chassis above ground, and directs driving forces to the in-board suspension translating heave and roll motion to get the best possible grip to the tarmac. Building the suspension system requires a lot of fine tuning to get optimal traction, stability and driving dynamics.

vehicle dynamics
The Vehicle Dynamics group is all about race performance. Using advanced estimation- and control theory, we enhance the traction, handling and stability of the car and develop systems to assist the driver. We develop multiple driving modes with very different characteristics to make the car behave optimally, whether in a tight corner or a straight line. To aid development it does modelling and simulation, where we aim to build an accurate digital representation of our car. Through simulations, we are able to see the effects of different car parameters and setups, helping us make good design choices without physical testing.

State Estimation
The Data Engineering group is responsible for designing and developing cutting-edge analysis software, which is used to analyse the vehicles performance to create even better solutions! They design solutions for storage, analysis and visualisation such that Revolve NTNU can use sensor data to design better race cars! In addition the group has newly developed a system for keeping track of time and events when we are out testing. This ensures that we can analyse how well we use our time, increase our productivity, and filter out the flaws experienced during testing. For the coming year, the group is planning to develop a new and improved live telemetry- and monitoring platform for on-site analysis. This will decrease the downtime debugging the car, and make the sensor data easily accessible for further analysis.

autonomous systems
The Autonomous Systems (AS) group ensures the car can drive on its own, without a driver. An intelligent autonomous race car must be able to map and perceive its surroundings to navigate unknown territories using LiDAR, SLAM (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping) and path planning. The group develops the logic that works as the car's eyes, ears and brain, making it able to understand its environment. In other words, the group converts sensor input to meaningful information about the vehicle and its environment. In addition to this, the group is responsible for the car’s autonomous control system. This is the system that enables the car to act on the sensor input, making it able to drive from A to B.

Mechatronics is responsible for modifying the electrical and mechanical systems of our driverless vehicle, allowing it to function as a fully autonomous race car. This involves designing and manufacturing actuators for vehicle control and brackets for required sensors, as well as designing circuit boards that run the autonomous state machine. In addition to this, Mechatronics carries out maintenance of existing systems.
